Tip of the Day – Basket case
Cats and especially kittens love to play in and around objects, especially when they have a rough or scratchy texture. I purchased some square baskets cheaply for this purpose and often take them along to adoptable cat shoots. It gives them something to crawl into – cats love boxes! – and something to play with, in and around. They’re a great icebreaker and nice looking enough to work as a prop when the background is fairly plain.
